There have been a number of improvements and bug fixes in the rms
package which is now on CRAN for linux/unix (and shortly to be available
for Mac and Windows).

- Gls: Updated optimization calls - had become inconsistent with gls and failed if > 1 correlation parameter (thanks: Mark Seeto <markseeto_at_gmail.com>); removed opmeth argument
- print.fastbw: added argument: estimates
- survplot.survfit: handled fact that survival:::summary.survfit may not preserve order of strata levels. Also fixed survit.cph and cph; Thanks: William.Fulp_at_moffitt.org
- plot.Predict: added example showing how to rename variables in plot
- print(fit object, latex=TRUE): added latex.naprint.delete, used new Hmisc latexDotchart function to make a dot chart of number of NAs due to each model variable if at least 4 variables have NAs
- added trans argument to plot.anova.rms to allow transformed scales
- Corrected cph to use model.offset(); thanks: Simon Thornley <s.thornley_at_auckland.ac.nz>
- Changed latex.anova.rms to use REGRESSION instead of TOTAL label
- Changed gendata, contrast.rms to allow expand=FALSE to prevent expand.grid from being called to generate all combinations of predictors
- Added type= to plot.Predict to allow user to specify a different default line/point type (especially useful when x is categorical)
- Corrected bug in offset in psm - made default offset the length of X
- Corrected bug in calibrate.psm (fixed -> parms)
- predab.resample, calibrate.cph, calibrate.default, calibrate.psm: stopped putting results from overall initial fit into .Global and instead had predab.resample put them in attribute keepinfo, obtained from measure()
